The Riverside Country Club was filled to capacity when our Optimist Club held its annual Cash Raffle Party on Saturday, March 3rd. This is believed to be our most successful raffle as all the tickets were sold and the tickets held out and sold during the raffle drew many anticipating winners. All but one of the final 10 tickets was represented and there was no pooling together – each went for the big cash prize. The last ticket drawn was the individual not present, but of course he still collects the cash!
A special thanks from our club goes out to Dr. Jeromy Myers, who chaired the event. Club member Duncan Bailey also was very valuable in offering his past experience of chairing the event, plus club member Chad Kyger gets special recognition for selling the most tickets. Also, thanks to the numerous club members who volunteered their time during the event to assist in various capacities.
The food was great, the MC’s spiced up the event and a great time was had by those in attendance as you can tell by the many smiling faces.
